Care UK colleagues, patients and residents set to come together and support the world’s biggest coffee morning

September 28th 2017

Care UK colleagues, patients and residents set to come together and support the world’s biggest coffee morningColleagues in nearly 50 Care UK services nationwide are doing their bit for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 29 September to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Preparations started earlier in the week as generous team members volunteered their time to help organise baking competitions, cake sales, afternoon get-togethers and other fun events – many of which are open to the wider community.

Since the first World’s Biggest Coffee Morning took place in 1990 over £165 million has been raised for the charity, enabling it to support individuals from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

This year, Care UK anticipates that hundreds of its care home residents, NHS patients, their relatives and visitors will come together for cake and catch-ups to raise money for the 2.5 million people living with cancer across the UK.

They will be able to enjoy a relaxing cuppa along with a tempting selection of homemade cakes and treats – all of which are available for a small donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.
